Dog Parks and Walks in Salisbury, a nonprofit organization, has been raising money to put in a fence for the park since 2012. Theresa Pitner, president of the group, said she wanted an opportunity for dogs to get out of their backyards to mingle with other dogs and for dog owners to come together.
“When you go to a dog park, dogs will socialize with others and dog enthusiasts will socialize with each other,” Pitner said.
“It’s a great opportunity to offer another recreation amenity for citizens of Salisbury and Rowan County,” said Nick Aceves, city parks and recreation director.
Dog PAWS will continue to raise money to add an electronic fence and camera at the park, which will cost $20,000. Pitner said the group also wants to raise an additional $15,000 for play equipment.
